Prevent Heart Failure Hospitalizations by Remotely Managing PA Pressure with the CardioMEMS HF System

Abbott’s CardioMEMS™ HF System is the only remote monitoring platform clinically proven to aid physicians in preventing worsening heart failure,1 lowering mortality rates2 and improving quality of life3 — even for HFpEF patients.4 As telemedicine becomes more common, the CardioMEMS HF System is a safe, reliable way to help your patients manage their heart failure.

The CardioMEMS HF System offers you real-time notification of patient changes and simple, convenient access to secure data for proactive, personalized patient management. It also provides patients with a heightened awareness of the factors affecting their health and a powerful sense of control.

Monitoring pulmonary artery (PA) pressures is proactive and actionable

Clinical studies have shown that the CardioMEMS HF System:

•   REDUCES heart failure hospitalizations3,6
•   LOWERS mortality2,7
•   IMPROVES quality of life and functional capacity3,5
•   DECREASES Heart Failure hospitalization costs6

The CardioMEMS HF System remotely monitors changes in pulmonary artery (PA) pressure, an early indicator of the onset of worsening heart failure. These early changes can often be addressed through simple adjustments to care, such as titration of medications, most often without requiring an appointment with the patient.

Traditionally, clinicians have focused on physiological markers (patient weight, blood pressure, etc.) to detect worsening heart failure. Unfortunately, these markers appear late in the time course of decompensation. Relying on them leaves little time to respond before hospitalization is necessary.

The CardioMEMS HF System is the only proven, proactive and personalized product for both HFrEF and HFpEF patients.

  • PROVEN: The CardioMEMS HF System is proven through clinical trial data to reduce heart failure hospitalizations and mortality,2,3 as well as improve QOL for HFrEF and HFpEF patients.3,4,5
  • PROACTIVE: Actionable measurements of PA pressures allow proactive changes in medical therapy before heart failure symptoms appear,1 reducing heart failure hospitalizations.3
  • PERSONALIZED: By individually setting patient thresholds, the CardioMEMS HF System allows physicians to personalize and optimize their care and medical management.
